Control: severity -1 serious

Dear maintainers of icedove-bidiui,

Thunderbird 52.5.2 has entered unstable a few days ago and the source
isn't building any transitional packages (e.g. icedove* or iceowl*)
since 1:52.5.0-1.
By this the package icedove-bidiui is now also preventing the migration
of the src:thunderbird packages from unstable to testing. As written
earlier I raise the severity for icedove-bidiui to serious.

Please update icedove-bidiui so both packages can be used.
